Chamera Dam is around 40 kilometers from Chamba Town. It takes approximately 1.5 hrs to reach the place is road condition is good. Overall it’s a little dry terrain as compared to Dalhousie and Khajjiar. And temperature also goes up as we go towards Chamera Dam.

Sun Reflecting off the waters of the Ranjit Singh Dam...: The town of Chamba is located at a distance of 56 kms from Dalhousie. Unlike Dalhousie, Chamba is located in a valley surrounded by majestic mountains and lies on the banks of the river Ravi. The town is also famous for the fact that a part of the Bollywood movie, Taal, was shot here. The market area in the town is not well-maintained and desparately cries out for a cleaning up. The colorful sloping roofs contrast well with the brown of the mountains and the deep blues of the sky. There is a vast green area right in front of the town. This is the garden that features in most of the Himachal pradesh Tourism Pictures of Chamba. When I visited Chamba, the green area was not open for public. Work was in progress for installing light posts and what looked like the entire population of the town was simply standing there and watching the labourers at work. These are the simple pleasures that you lose out on while living a super fast city life.All around the green area, there is a paved path. The place is ideal for an evening walk. I had Golgappas there. Not good as the ones we get in Delhi.These were the lights that were being installed in the green area. There were a few benches there leading me to believe that the garden does open up for the public some time. The Entrance. Among other attractions of Chamba is this Raja Bhuri Singh Museum which show cases several paintings, sculptures and weapons. The museum was established in 1908.Chamba, Himachal Pradesh, himalayas, Taal, Valley, Town, Museum,  Raja Bhuri Singh

Sun Reflecting off the waters of the Ranjit Singh Dam...: Kala-Top trek is near Dalhousie which is a very popular Hill Station in Himachal Pradesh state of INDIA. Here I am sharing few photographs of KALA TOP trek with some background about this trek... Check out...Kala Top is a Wild Life Sanctuary but we were not able to see any wildlife there though we enjoyed different walks inside the forest....Its an amazing and different trekking experience of going through Kala-Top having thick forests of Deodar (Cedar) trees on alpine hills.A wooden house on the way to Kala Top from Dalhousie...Its a stretch of 12 kilometers approximately from Gandhi Chowk in Dalhousie. We have cross beautiful Bakrota Hills which give clear view to Peer-Panjal mountain range, Bara Pathar, Alha and Lakkar Mandi. I think Lakkar mandi is 9 km from Dlhousie and Kala top is 3 km from Lakkar Mandi...There are two treks to reach the first milestone which is Bakrota Hills.. One is through a Kamala Nehru Park and other is through Dalhousie Public School and Central School for Tibetans which are located on Raizada Hans Raj Road... We decided to follow the road first...Rabindrabath Tagore spent few months with his father at Snowdown cottage at Upper Bakrota hills...Next Milestone Bara Pathar was a good place to have a tea break near an open amphitheater and a temple...Here is a view of road inside Kala Top Wild life sanctuary...Trekking is best way of appreciating the beauty of nature and especially when you are at hills covered with snow and surrounded by huge deodars making dense forests...Time to go back to the hotel and take some rest before next trek to Dainkund near Dalhousie...  I will share more photographs of Dainkund Trek soon....Few people prefer to reach Lakkar Mandi by Taxi/Bus and trek other part till kala-Top...There is a Forest Guset house at Kala-Top and not sure if it can be booked for unofficial reasons... Vehicles are not allowed inside this forest without permission from Forest Department...My friend Vikas taking some rest on the way to Kala Top... He is a trek enthusiast and had been to many difficult treks in Himachal Pradesh... He is the one with whom I was able to complete Shrikhand Mahadev Trek :-)There are many such ponds in this forest which serve water needs of wild animals in Kala Top Sanctuary...Another mud house having wooden roof... There are few such houses inside the jungle where nobody lives but they give a feeling of haunted houses in dense jungle...There are many such boards on the way but in reality we didn't see anything... But we were very happy with the natural beauty of the forest @ Kala Top, Dalhousie, Himachal Pradesh...

Sun Reflecting off the waters of the Ranjit Singh Dam...: On the way from Chamba to Dalhousie, my taxi-wallah stopped at a peaceful location where one could easily access the rocky banks of the river Ravi that flows along the town of Chamba. The blue waters of the river present a striking contrast againsts the brown rocks and mountains. The wide spectrum of various colors enriches this untouched rustic landscape.The river snakes through the rocks and pebbles and the mountains. It has carved its way through them across the centuries.A couple of local village boys were having a liqour party. They chose the highest of the rocks on the bank.The distant bridge and the rounded rocks make this location worth painting.The ripples in the water paint beautiful light patterns on the rocks below.As the water levels were low during this season, numerous small pools had formed on the banks. The river bed was slippery because of age old algae.These pools were the ideal play ponds for little birds. See if you can spot one in this picture.Himachal Pradesh, ravi, Chamba, Rivers, Water, Birds, Hills, himalayas

The peaks are covered in snow throughout the year and the range boasts of some high altitude passes including Rohtang La and Sach passes.,Pir Panjal range and the adjoining valley, Pangi, can be viewed from the mall road of Dalhousie. The Snow covered peaks along side the Ranjeet Singh Dam catchment area present a spectacular view. It seems surreal. The range seems so near, it is very hard to believe that it is about 174 kms away.

Sun Reflecting off the waters of the Ranjit Singh Dam...: Manimahesh kailash, manimahesh, kailash, Dalhousie, Pir Panjal, Pandhi, Sach Pass, himalayas,  Himachal Pradesh,Pir Panjal Range runs from South East to North West, running across the states of Himachal Pradesh and Jammu and Kashmir. The peaks are covered in snow throughout the year and the range boasts of some high altitude passes including Rohtang La and Sach passes.,Pir Panjal range and the adjoining valley, Pangi, can be viewed from the mall road of Dalhousie. The Snow covered peaks along side the Ranjeet Singh Dam catchment area present a spectacular view. It seems surreal. The range seems so near, it is very hard to believe that it is about 174 kms away.
 
Peer-Panjal Mountain range can always be seen from Mall-Road in Dalhousie...

Its located between beautiful hills of Chamba... There are some pine forests around it and recommended for nature walks...Panchpula is known for its waterfalls and few other water-streams, which are main source of water for Dalhousie region... Words can't define this place.. Even photographs can't express this place... Amazing place and must visit... Check out more photograph of this place by clicking on the photograph above... This is also known as Mini Switzerland of INDIA...Chamba is district headqaurter of Dalhousie and Khajjiar... There is a museum here to know more about Chamba and its past... There are few temples on hill tops...There are various walks in Dalhousie town.... Mall Road, Shubhash Chowk to Gandhi Chowk (A small road apart from Mall Road...)There are two Churches in Dalhousie.. One is near Shubhash Chowk, having colorful birds and rabbits caught inside... Other one is near Gandhi Chowk which has some fixed timings to open and close... Kala Top is Wild-Life Sanctuary and wonderful trek.. Click on above photograph to know more about the place and see few other photographs...If there is no snow in Dalhouise, go to Dainkund... You will find something to play with :-) .... A nice trek through forests and high mountains...Main river in Chamba District... Ravi River...If you go to Chamba from Dalhousie via Khajjiar, a place comes on the way which has clear way to Kailash... Place mentioned in HPTDC Tourist-Guide...Per-Panjal Mountain range can always be seen from Mall-Road in Dalhousie...Go to back side of Church at Shubhash Chowk durin sunset and spend some quality time in the evening there... Nice place to spend 1 hr during sunset... Calm road where most of the local-folks come for evening walk... Sun Reflecting off the waters of the Ranjit Singh Dam...: The good thing about Dalhousie is that the mall road is mostly empty of stalls and shops and is a great place to take a walk with your camera. There are rest benches at strategic locations from where you can see some spectacular views. If you are adventurous, you can also go on the terraces of the hotels to lean out into the valley and click that absolutely priceless shot. However, Mall road is best for day time shots and sunset is not visible clearly from there. For the sunset, the quiet road right behind my hotel was the best. All of the shots below are taken from that road. Dalousie, Sunset, Himachal Pradesh, himalayas, India, Hills
